Facebook Announces Social Search Engine: Graph Search
- Posted on: Jan 15 2013
Facebook – the world’s largest social network – has just announced it will be throwing its hat into the search engine ring. Unveiling Graph Search, a first-of-its-kind social search engine, users will now be able to sift through Facebook’s enormous collection of public data using a simple, visual interface. Where Google and other search engines draw together content from around the web, Graph Search will generate its results based on the interests, photos and locations of Facebook’s over 1 billion users.
So, how does it work? Graph Search is a “natural language” search engine. This means you can type a phrase like, “People who like Skin Care and are from Saint Paul, Minnesota,” and you will be presented with pages and pages of people to browse and connect with.
